Here is a super easy way to make a pudding that is so thick it’s like mousse! You only need a few ingredients to have a divinely decadent dessert that will punch your cravings in the taste buds without cheating on most diets.

It only takes about ten minutes to make—from getting all of the things out of the closet to finally stuffing it in your face! When you google pudding recipes, it seems they like to make the recipes harder than they have to be. This is almost as easy as the pre-packaged puddings, but without all of the sugar or artificial sweeteners. Many recipes call for the use of double boilers—you won’t need one with this recipe. All I have around my house are normal pots and pans, and this recipe is going to use one of those.

For the sake of your health, we are going to use non-GMO cornstarch, which you can find at a health food store or online.

Some people experience trouble with lumps forming when they use cornstarch but there is a great way around that where you will get exactly zero lumps: whisk the cornstarch into the COLD liquid. Works like a charm.

Ingredients:

  • 2 servings chocolate Protein 6 or Pure Whey (if using vanilla, add 2 tbsp. more cocoa powder)
  • ¼ cup non-GMO corn starch—for a thinner pudding use 3 tablespoons rather than ¼ cup
  • 2 cage free egg yolks
  • 1-2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa/chocolate powder
  • 1-2 stevia packets
  • 11-12 oz. cold unsweetened almond milk (I used vanilla for extra flavor)

Directions:

Take the cold almond milk and egg yolks and pour it into a smaller pot. Whisk in the cocoa powder and cornstarch for a few minutes, and then turn the burner on to medium heat. Whisk some more. It won’t look like anything is happening for a few minutes but keep whisking anyway. Once it reaches the magic temperature it will suddenly become super thick and it will be a bicep and front-delt workout to stir! The change happens in what seems as an instant—like Clark Kent going into a telephone booth and emerging as Superman. That’s when you can turn the burner off and set it on a cool burner to cool for a minute or two. Add one serving of the Protein 6 (2 scoops) and the stevia, stir until blended, and then add the other serving (another 2 scoops) and stir until that too is blended. You can eat it at any point after this, hot or cold. I put it in the fridge and it keeps pretty well. Enjoy this easy treat with your friends or significant other! This recipe makes 2 servings.
